Most Popular Audio for 2011

peter donegan

I’ll start first with the piece of audio that is one of my favourites. Surprisingly, although one of the shortest it took the longest from an editing perspective. The audio itself was used for a talk I did on podcasting at a conference in Tallaght Stadium in June 2011.

The most popular piece of audio for 2011 however is my interview with Anne O’Hara of Mornington House.

According to audioboo stats [only] it has 1,705 listens making it more popular than my audio with Jack Charlton. The audio quality isn’t the greatest in parts as it was almost the first time for me to use skype recording. That said, I loved doing this interview and if content is king, then it’s popularity is solely because of Anne.

About The SodShow:

Join Peter & Brian for an alternative view of all things outdoors with studio guests, field recordings, educational talks in a fun and unique garden radio style. With tools, plants & garden work for the week and trip to Dublin’s famous and well hidden parks & gardens the SodShow is fast growing to be a permanent fixture on Dublin’s radio dial since its launch in March 2011.

The SodShow is quite unique in that it started life as a popular podcast crossing over to live radio due to its growing demand.

Peter
Good to hear of you again and well done especially on the garden group outings – great idea. I was out in Corkagh Park this morning and when I came back in and read about your tours – I thought why not contact Peter and remind him of South Dublin parks. There is a wonderful pet farm in Corkagh now as well as a rose garden and put and take fishery. I always wish I could stay there for a longer period.
Let me know if you need any further information
Take care

Controlling priority invasive non-native plants and restoring native biodiversity (CIRB) project – launching Tuesday February 1st – well worth a read is http://invasives.biodiversityireland.ie

The CIRB project (Controlling invasive priority non-native species and restoring native biodiversity) is funded by INTERREG IVA and is being undertaken by a partnership of Queens University Belfast, the Rivers and Fisheries Trusts of Scotland, University of Ulster and Inland Fisheries Ireland.

The project aims to demonstrate that a prioritised suite of invasive species namely, giant hogweed, rhododendron, Japanese knotweed and Himalayan balsam can be controlled or eradicated strategically on a catchment scale.  Biosecurity strategies will be developed and implemented to prevent reintroduction of these species to the catchments.  The impact of these species and the control programme on ecosystem services will also be investigated and the economic benefits of control programmes demonstrated.

CIRB will contribute to halting biodiversity loss in Ireland, Northern Ireland and western Scotland by preventing further impacts on native biodiversity by riparian invasive species through the development and demonstration of effective control methods, a programme of stakeholder engagement, research, policy development and dissemination.

The project will take place in three catchments in the border regions of Ireland (Faughan, Newry/Clanrye and Dee/Glyde) and 4 areas in Scotland (Argyll, Ayrshire, Galloway and the Tweed).
